"The members of the California Republican Assembly are principled volunteers who work hard to put Republican ideas into action. I'm proud to have CRA's support in this campaign," said Nehring, who has consistently earned the group's endorsement in past campaigns for state party office. "A strong campaign in California unites our base while building a broad, majority coalition. I'm looking forward to bringing the Republican team together to maximize our opportunities for victory in November."
Polling over the last several months shows a national political environment that continues to turn toward Republicans, with experts seeing a Republican takeover of the U.S. Senate together with a returning Republican majority in the House increasingly likely.
"We need to be prepared to take full advantage of the favorable political environment that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have created for Republicans nationally. Politics is like football: we can only score when we're on offense, and that means fielding candidates for every office and articulating a positive, forward-looking message that speaks to voters' concerns about California's sluggish economy, limited economic opportunities, and underperforming schools. To win, we must become the party of bold reform," said Nehring.
Ron Nehring served as Chairman of the California Republican Party from 2007 to 2011 and is running for California Lt. Governor on a platform of promoting bold reform to restore the state's economic competitiveness and improve education. For more information, visit RonNehring.com.
